Both my husband and I liked this. I found the vegetables to still have a crunch (I thought it would be mushy). I even enjoyed this the next day!! I did not have fresh mushrooms so I look forward to making this again.

Loved it, delicious! Used the California mix veggie blend as JackieG316 did. A tasty, easy dish.

We weren't wild about this. The broccoli and cauliflower turn to mush with that long a cook time. The flavor was ok, but I would add more cheese if I were doing it again. Usually my family loves walking in the door to the smell of dinner in the crockpot, but instead of "ooh, yum, what smells so good?" I got "Yuck, what's that smell?" Also, be aware that it makes a LOT! We have enough for 3 meals, and I'm the only one who cared for it.

Love this as hubby likes it also. Instead of the fresh cauliflower, carrots and broccoli I used two 12 oz packages of frozen California Mix veggies made by Kroger as it contains all 3 veggies and I use a lot of frozen veg. Super easy to throw together in the crock pot and dinner is done!
